Ring 1922, p. 16: 'While the catalogue of the Johnson Collection was being made, the "Bust of a man in prayer" [= kunstwerknummer 42215] gave rise to a difference of opinion, so that the picture under dispute was mentioned twice in the text: in volume one under the Italian School as Andrea Solario (Nr. 273) on the authority of Bernard Berenson, who gave his eminent knowledge to the Italian part of the collection, and in volume two under the Netherlandish school as Jan Provost (Nr. 355) according to the attribution of Dr. M. J. Friedländer who was seconded by Dr. W. R. Valentiner.'
